SOLVANG WITH RON & PAM

Pam and I are going to the Solvang/Buellton area for the weekend of April 27 and 28.  If any club members would like to meet us in central California, we would be happy to host two rides.   We will be riding both days.  Both of the rides will be social rides in the level 3 range.  We have been there in the past and the rides have been fantastic.  The wildflowers should be in bloom.  The rides will end early enough to leave the afternoon available for wine and beer tasting. 

 

Saturday’s ride will start at 8:30 am in the city of Los Alamos at Los Alamos County Park.  The park is located at 500 Drum Canyon Rd, Los Alamos.  There is ample parking at this location.  The park is approximately 15 miles north of Buellton off the 101 freeway.  The ride will go through the southern part of the Santa Maria wine country, the Foxen Canyon wine trail, and loop back through the Los Alamos valley.  We will take a rest stop at the Rancho Sisquoc Winery, wine tasting is voluntary.  The ride will be 38 miles with 1800 feet of climbing.  If you have never ridden through this area, it is well worth it.

The ride on Sunday will also start at 8:30 am.  We will leave from the Pea Soup Anderson’s Inn parking lot in Buellton located at 51 E Hwy 246.  The ride will go through Solvang, Happy Canyon, Los Olivos, and Ballard canyon.  We will stop for coffee at the Corner House café in Los Olivos.  The Sunday ride will be 29 miles with 1300 feet of climbing. 

We have not reserved a group of rooms; everyone is responsible for their own accommodations.  We are planning a group dinner on Saturday.  If you have any questions please contact me (uscrpick@aol.com) or Pam (duffill@aol.com).  If you are considering going please let Pam or me know so we can plan reservations for the Saturday dinner If you’d like to know the routes email me and I will send you the Ride With GPS route map.

L3-DR. MIKE'S HARBOR CRUISE

Ride with Dr Mike "Ahhh" Mosig on this tour of the LA Harbor. Not to be missed! 44 miles and 1600 feet. The only ride this week that does not involve food.....yet.

L4-THE CORNER STORE

A loop around PV and a stop at the Corner Store.

32 miles, 1600 feet led by OM Travis.

When it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, or otherwise unsafe riding conditions, it is club policy to cancel a club ride.  Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
